Oct 13th, 2021 - Background: While Coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccines are highly effective, breakthrough infections are occurring. Booster vaccinations have recently received emergency use authorization (EUA) for certain populations but are restricted to homologous mRNA vaccines. We evaluated homologous and heterologous booster vaccination in persons who had received an EUA Covid-19 vaccine regimen.
Oct 23rd, 2021 - The FDA has approved a first-of-its kind continuous delivery system for anti-VEGF therapy for neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The Susvimo ocular implant continuously releases 100 mg/mL of ranibizumab directly to the retina over 6 months. Initial implantation and refill can be performed during an office visit with an ophthalmologist. In contrast, conventional intravitre...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - In cystic fibrosis (CF), loss of CFTR-mediated bicarbonate secretion reduces the airway surface liquid (ASL) pH causing airway host defense defects. Aerosolized sodium bicarbonate can reverse these defects, but its effects are short-lived. Aerosolized tromethamine (THAM) also raises the ASL pH but its effects are much longer lasting. In this pilot study, we tested the hypothesis that nasally ad...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - We describe the utility of a tandem-tagged autophagy reporter mouse model (CAG-RFP-EGFP-MAP1LC3B) in investigating basal macroautophagic/autophagic flux in the neural retina. Western blot, in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, and confocal microscopy showed that CAG promoter-driven expression of RFP-EGFP-MAP1LC3B increased "cytosolic" RFP-EGFP-LC3B-I levels, whereas RFP-EGFP-LC3B-II deco...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a form of primary acute leukemia with high mortality. Our previous study demonstrated that miR-149-3p was down-regulated in chemoresistant acute leukemia cells. However, the biological function of miR-149-3p in AML needs to be further explored. Herein, the expression of miR-149-3p was overexpressed/silenced in U-937 human AML cells via transfection with miR-149-3...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a malignant disease of the hematopoietic system. Residual leukemic cells after treatment are associated with relapse. Thus, detecting minimal residual disease (MRD) is significant. Major techniques for MRD assessment include multiparameter flow cytometry (MFC), polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and next-generation sequencing (NGS). At a molecular level, AML is the...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Loose bodies are frequently encountered during clinical activity and a common finding during knee arthroscopy. Usually, treatment consists of the removal of the loose bodies, which can be challenging even for experienced surgeons. The excision alone is not always the complete treatment, because loose bodies are generally secondary to other diseases that can cause persistent symptoms with the ri...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Peripheral neuroblastic tumors (pNTs) are the most common childhood extracranial solid tumors. There are several therapeutic strategies targeting disialoganglioside GD2. Disialoganglioside GD3 has become a potential target. However, the mechanism by which pNTs express GD3 and GD2 remains unclear. We investigated the combined expression status of GD3 and GD2 in pNTs and delineated their clinicop...

It is also one of the most common causes for enucleation and carries a significant morbidity rate in affected individuals. Hence, studies on its pathophysiological and growth regulatory mechanisms are urgently needed to identify more effective novel therapeutics. Using the Y79 retinoblastoma cell line, we investigated the elect...
